Sohbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated August 28, 2020 / 9 Muharram 1442
Inshaa Allah tomorrow is Ashura, the 10th day of Muharram. It is a very blessed day, tomorrow. Allah Azza wa Jalla in this day He created Hazrat-e-Adam, He created Heavens, He created….. the Angels and they say it is created the mountains, lots of ….. creation was happening in Ashura day. Name, name Ashura means the ten, ten of Ashura, of Muharram. And Allah Azza wa Jalla….. He, created Hazrat-e- Adam and He was also forgiving him on the day of Ashura. He was also, the day of Ashura Hazrat-e-Nooh was his, he land on, on….. on land with his boat, arc on Ashura day.
Hazrat-e-Ibrahim was born on Ashura day and Ashura day was saved from fire and also Ashura day it is that when he was sacrificing his son it was Ashura day Allah Azza wa Jalla sent the ramp to sacrifice instead of his son, the Ashura day. The Ashura day Hazrat-e-Isah was born on Ashura day and also was raised to, to sky on Ashura day.
Ashura day Hazrat-e-Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was married with Hazrat-e-Khadija tul Qubrah. Ashura day Hazrat-e-Musa was passed the sea with Bani Israel, crossed the sea with son of Israel, children of Israel and this, that’s why, the jews are fasting Ashura day. And Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam was telling us that, to be difference between us and jews that we fast one more day either 9th and 10th or 10th and 11th.
Also it is very blessed to fast from the 1st of Muharram till the 10th of Muharram it is very blessed fasting. The fasting of Ashura day it is best fasting after Ramadan, Ramadan fasting after Ramadan fasting it is the best fasting is to fast Ashura day. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam before hijrah to, migration to Medina was fasting from, these 10 days of Muharram. It was also tradition and Arabs also they all fast this ten, first 10 days of Muharram it was like fasting time.
But when immigrated to Medina, when the obligatory became that Ramadan should be fast, month of Ramadan should be fast than it was Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam left it as Sunnah you can fast from 1st of Muharram till 10th but if you cannot you can fast 2 days 9th and 10th or 10th and 11th or if you like you can to make three days also you can make 9,10,11 as….. as you can.
This is….. the last day, last day from the last year and the first day from the first year also to Sunnah to fast the hijri year. It is that you closing the year with fasting and beginning the other year with fasting this is also Sunnah Insha Allah.
And there is prayer in after, between Zuhr and Asr, 4 rakat prayers you make Niyah of Ashura day many….. ,many versions from hadith Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam one of them is one Fatiha for each rakat and 50 Ikhlas.
One version is one Fatiha one ‘Iza zul zilatil ard zil zaal’ and one ‘Qul ya ayyuhal kafirun’ and one ‘Ikhlas’, the other version is each rakat you read fatiha, zil zaal, Kafirun and ikhlaas.
Other version after 4 rakat you pray 2-2 or you pray, you can pray it 4 together but you pray it as you are praying two rakat, two rakat. And after salam you give, make 70 astaghfirullah, 70 Hasbunnallah wa ni’malwakeel and 70 Allahumma salliala Muhammadin wa aala ali Muhammadin wa sallim. And then, you pray whatever you asking from Allah, we ask Insha Allah for Akhirah and duniya , ‘Rabbana aatina fiddunya hasanatan wa fil Akhirati hasanatan waqına Adzabannar’. When you pray you know how to pray your prayer should be….. wise prayer, while you are praying for yourself, for your family, for the Ummah also pray for your Akhirah, for your, the life after not only this life.
And there is 1000 Ikhlas Sharif to read all day Inshaa Allah you read Inshaa Allah. Every time I say I read I am only half, what, Allah knows why I should say everytime…..
So, it is very blessed day to, Inshaa Allah mubarak Allah give what you are in your hearts what is good for you what Allah knows better is good for you Allah give for you for all of the, who is listening, who is….. reading Inshaa Allah and for all Ummat Muhammad may Allah make opening and Fatah an Nasr and Farj For all the momineen wal mominaat muslimeen wal muslimaat and for all Ummat e Muhammad and Inshaa Allah, Allah send us Mehdi Alaihisalam as soon as possible Inshaa Allah.
And Allah make this illness and virus to go away we have to make Astaghfirullah everyday and we have to follow what Shaykh Mehmat is saying also what we have to do with wird we have to continue keep continue doing it is not finished yet until he said it’s finished then it will be finished Insha Allah and we have to keep sitting in our houses not to go out so much and not to think that I want to go to holiday we have to be at home better for us and for all we have to pray for fatah, for Fatah Inshaa Allah, for faraj, opening and for ….. happiness, salvation Insha Allah.
Shaykh Muhammad was recommending Astaghfirullah and recommending Hasbunnallah wa ni’malwakeel and Salat un Tunjina. You know, 100 time Astaghfirullah atleast, 100 time Hasbunnallah wa ni’malwakeel atleast, 7 time Salat un Tunjina it is 40 times mostly, if you like you have to make it if you cannot atleast 7 times a day and you pray for forgiveness Insha Allah it is the Ummah situation is not very nice, it doesn’t look so nice so we have to ask forgiveness really, really from the deep of our hearts, forgiveness from Allah Azza wa Jalla and from Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam also asking for his forgiveness and his mercy.
